Mugiithi singer Joyce Wa Mamaa on Monday evening announced to her fans she was not okay after her birthday ended chaotically.

She said Katerina, a cake baker, walked toward her and sprinkled a substance on her face from the bottle she was holding.

Wa Mamaa, popularly known for her collabo with singer Samidoh 'Wendo Wi Cama', was at her birthday party on Kangundo Road.

A Twitter user identified as Moses Ngige said she was then attacked.

"As Joyce wa Mamaa was celebrating her birthday last night, an unidentified woman sprayed her and other artistes with an unknown liquid that almost turned them blind," he wrote.

"Apparently, the lady who splashed an itchy liquid to Joyce Wa Mamaa and other top Kikuyu musicians last night had failed to secure a deal to her birthday cake. Makasiriko Galore."

Speaking to Word Is, Katerina said she was defending herself from some young men who snatched her phone at the club.

"It was around 6am and the only available weapon I had was pepper spray. I was not targeting her at all," she said.

Katerina added that Wa Mamaa was seated far from where the incident happened. 

She alleged that Wa Mamaa's team cooked up the story to chase clout.

"We reported the matter to Obama police station in Kayole, and when Wa Mamaa's team was called, they never came back to follow up on the story," she said.

"I also talked to singer Wanja Asali. I had finished my cake delivery job and was just having fun at the club. They brought the phone back."

She urged the singer to stop tarnishing her name on social media.

Word Is reached out to Joyce Wa Mamaa, but she did not receive our calls.

She took to Facebook to thank her fans for checking up on her.

"l thank God I'm well, I'm home," she said, sharing photos of Katerina, whom she alleged assaulted her.
